Return to Toolbox Main.

Case Example: Lincoln-Lancaster


At the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department in Nebraska, a team of seven division managers and Health Department leadership completed the Local Health Department Self-Assessment Tool for Accreditation Preparation.  The result included scoring of the 255 Operational Definition indicators, some implementation of quality improvement processes, and the identification of illustrative evidence.

A second outcome of the project was the development of a database to connect the Operational Definition indicators and illustrative evidence to the Department's existing databases and hard copy files.  As a result of the demonstration project, the Department will proceed with pursuing national accreditation.

Detailed information on the project is available in this 7-page case example.
